Subject[PATCH 4/4] fs: remove inode_lock from iput_final and prune_icache
Date
From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com>

Now that inode state changes are protected by the inode->i_lock and
the inode LRU manipulations by the inode_lru_lock, we can remove the
inode_lock from prune_icache and the initial part of iput_final().

instead of using the inode_lock to protect the inode during
iput_final, use the inode->i_lock instead. This protects the inode
against new references being taken while we change the inode state
to I_FREEING, as well as preventing prune_icache from grabbing the
inode while we are manipulating it. Hence we no longer need the
inode_lock in iput_final prior to setting I_FREEING on the inode.

For prune_icache, we no longer need the inode_lock to protect the
LRU list, and the inodes themselves are protected against freeing
races by the inode->i_lock. Hence we can lift the inode_lock from
prune_icache as well.
